A short film currently in crowd funding from Graham Cribbin takes us back to the films we grew up on like Creature From The Black Lagoon. Starring Jaimi Paige as Carolyn Bronnicke with Jeison
Azali as Agent Finn, Michael Laurie as Director Smalls, and Marta McGonagle as Kelly/Gill Girl among others.
GRISLY depicts the story of Carolyn Bronnicke, a young woman who has mysteriously transformed into a mutated Gill Girl and is captured by ACS/M-Division, a secret government black-ops facility led by Director Christopher Smalls.
Assigned to review her case is Agent Milo Finn of the Central Intelligence Agency.
As Agent Finn conducts his review of the case he discovers a secret shop of horrors at ACS where Director Smalls has approved the torture and experimentation of Carolyn/Gill Girl led by his henchmen Prof. Matthew Lamb and Sgt. Alex Stevens.
According to the kickstarter "GRISLY was inspired by The Creature From the Black Lagoon and the sci-fi / horror movies of the 1950s. It can be described as X-Files meets True Blood. GRISLY captures a portion of a much larger universe of supernatural characters that will be expanded on in the GRISLY TALES web-series expected for release later this year."
Looking at the images and trailer it looks like we will be in for a heck of a ride.
This is the first in a planed web series and frankly I can't wait, how long have us horror fans been clamoring for a Creature reboot. Now for a little disclaimer the Creature From The Black Lagoon is my all time favorite monster hands down. He is the one Universal Monster that identified with the most. So anything that can come close to
recreating that is a big plus and instant like for me. And by everything I have read and seen this little project will fit the bill.
In a time filled with sparkly vamps and and other nonsense don't we need a monster that can rise above the norm and give us what we want like bad government agency's and monsters that don't feel the need to feel bad about surviving.
